, but bottom line is it works. the obama team went in and defined romney early. they spent money in the summer going after him, and romney was not given a chance to define himself, and that works. again, campaign 101, and the last one is that you always have to rebut the negatives against you. i mean, again, it is fundmental part of campaigning, and romney let the romney campaign let that summer go unanswered, let all the bain attacks go on unanswer. on medicare, on the offensive immediately, and look where we are. we are pretty much in the same place with the house. the house campaigns negative early, and the results are very apparent that that, again, works. is just for the future, i -- i look at this again as, like, a learning experience. this is, you know, 2004 all over again. it just -- republicans are the one with the wakeup call this time instead of the democrats. those sides have changed, and we need to -- we need to look back at this election and, you know, again, review our turnout techniques and go from there. >> thank you, blaise. electorat nor, distinguished writer, pub

about obama and romney. somebody afterwards asked me, he said, there was no discussion of the congressional races. does it matter in america who was elected to congress and it was like it really hit me. i think the answer is yes. and as a former nine term house member i was troubled by the question but i can understand that because most of the meaty discussion concerns the presidential race. i am convinced the founding fathers made a clear statement when they said that the first part of the organization of our government, the article i organization, was congress and in fact day they i think implicitly felt in terms of trying to -- executive authority that it was more important branch of the government at that point in time. not that times have changed but the power the president has changed dramatically but i think it's -- to ignore these races regardless of who is elected president. so we have this amazing election, interesting election on many parts of it and i think the topic occurring one day before the election is particularly relevant particularly as it relates to congre

video this year that was not a commercial, but it has to do with mitt romney's fundraising and the obama campaign decided use that footage in a series of ads. there are about five or six different ads that the obama campaign created using 47%. i will show you one example. >> ♪ ♪ >> [inaudible] >> if you think that half of the country are feeling like victims, i would not say victims. i don't think that's part of the american fabric. >> this is a web ad. this is not the day after the video emerged. this thing, more than ever, these ads are coming out almost instantaneously. i don't even think you talk about new cycle anymore, it's just nonstop. it is an endless stream of news. but that number, 47%, stuck with me. i remember that there was an advertisement against mcgovern, because we have to show another attack ad against him. but when i heard this attack ad, i thought, where did i hear this before? this is an advertisement, another attack ad from the nixon campaign. it also talks about 47%. >> george mcgovern recently submitted a welfare bill to congress. according to an analysis by

point of this presidential campaign? without exception, ever since the first debate between romney and obama. it's the one time we actually contested ideas, presented two viewpoints for the direction and then the remainder from politics to give the boys, don't show any contrast, don't want to go. so by the third debate and pretty certain that romney actually french kiss to barack obama. [laughter] and i have no doubt that there is a focus group somewhere of undecided ohio voters who lived in a cave for the last 30 years who decided they liked that. don't show any disagreement whatsoever to president, don't want to go. just be a nice guy and have a personality contest because those turn out so well for us. our ideas work. their ideas don't work. you know, even that first debate, how striking was it that when mitt romney presto, from his response was, well, under bill clinton there was great economic prosperity are the holy observer, is all about bill clinton and how nifty the economy was under him. i've got to tell you, i would've given a link to see that romney turned to him and say, m

ones to quote governor romney, who share our values or i can pick the one who don't, forget it. it's going to be confusing. perform to make mistakes. at the end of the day coming to want to see every in scoring a huge victory? you want to see syria turn into another big volusia? i don't. there's no other way america can play a role. [inaudible] there has been at least 11 waivers. we are still not going after the central bank of the iran. so that the administration really going to be serious about 19 sanctions really heard because they are dealing with the regime, which i don't think cares that much. >> the administration was given the right to waive sanctions on countries come actually sanctions on being specifically if those countries reduce significantly the oil imports from iran. because of the sanctions specifically in the fact that the administration had thanks to the congress giving it to the administration that flexibility can iran's exports have dropped from well over 2.2 or 2.4 million barrels a day to less than 800,000 barrels. that is a huge success. it's a success because

governor romney, as long as i'm president the not going to have weapons, but he began to define the concept because he said it will permit them to have a breakdown capacity. if you looked at where we are, by the end of 2013, given the pace of the program, we are not really going to be in a position any longer to know unless the program changes whether they can present. so the combination of the pressure they're under, which they're feeling, and the reality that there is a nuclear program and our objective of prevention sometime in the coming year, the likelihood to reach ahead. i do believe their is a diplomatic way out because i think the pressure is being felt by them. last point and the pressure. the ministry of intelligence on there website this week actually put out an analysis, highly unusual, and which they talk about, well, that describe what happened. on the one and sang well it would set us back a few years with dennis said diplomacy could achieve our aim at a much lower price. from an administrative intelligence. something you would never have seen before. so these, for m

, i must ask you -- understand that mitt romney suggested we need cuts in the federal government and even suggested fema might be a place to start. >> i just can't respond to that. all i know is i've got a bunch of folks, hundreds that have been working 24/7 for days now and in the foreseeable future and i've got them here and the field working with new jersey and new york and up into new england and west virginia and all of places impacted by this huge natural event and i'm going to focus on making sure they have the support they need to do their jobs and if they do their jobs well it will help everyone with the recovery from this really serious storm so let's focus on what's here and now and what we have to do to get the job done. >> fema isn't going away? >> not at all. i'm sorry but i just don't want to get into responding to the candidate speak. i want to talk about the fact that fema now has become a very agile proactive organization repositioning, things that really have been able to make incorporated response we call it speed and what i say is mass on target to get people in

. certainly one -- president obama, romney said the national security threat, president obama had a very different view. and so, but that's one issue where i stand it is seen as being helpful and if there'd been a different result, and may have been more complicated. and i think you make a very good point, how much of these issues really matter. i'm not talking about the drug issue, but that i would agree on. i think that's going to be much for difficult. but it does seem to be sort of a coincidence. a lot of things coming together now on immigration and especially one factor we didn't talk about, but it's going to influence that if the u.s. economy. and consumer confidence and other things that seem to be if those the economy becomes stronger for any immigration reform. i think immigration seems to be occupying and legacy -- a bomb is like so forth. that i think that's on his mind. >> from the start but the second question if i can. also obama talked about immigration policy before the election. we talked about this being one of his signature issues and i'm not quite sure how anyon

right, and we're seeing that much more clearly now with efforts to take power failed. if romney won, we wouldn't be saying this, but they were living in a sealed universe where before the election, you had, again, not just romney partsons, but those watching too much fox, should be held accountable, george lill, michael barone, dick morris -- >> is trey here? wrote a good piece -- >> john martin wrote a piece in "politico," and in 1972, pauline living in manhattan, a great film critic -- >> how could nixon -- >> i only know one person who voted for him and carried every state but massachusetts. i think something like that, less extreme version because obama didn't do as well as nix nixon, but something like that was going on with serious people. i had a bet with a conservative radio talk show host who bought me dinner in new york, that he nows owes me, that romney would win with more than 330 votes. >> ron, to get back to the main subject of what we learned about obama, one of more thesis in "confidence men," and then an op-ed piece five or six days ago is that obama did not mobilize hi

said one thing and i live in boston near the romney headquarters of my gut was sensing a lot of confidence coming out of that building. i did have a concession speech prepared for this event as we thought through what this conversation would be like depending on the scenario but i had a few quick questions on election night. the first was remembering exactly what it felt like in 2043 had a dozen constitutional amendments passed in the state all across the country. you had karl rove celebrated as the architect who had just built a new kind of republican electoral majority that would have laid the attraction for a decade or two and you had a president who was reelected not because of within the toolkit was the wedge issue lgbt families across the country. a dark moment, kind of the fetal movement for the lgbt movement and what i really sensed on election night this year was how proud i am about our resilience. we picked ourselves up and we decided to fight ends day and decided to start talking to republicans. we decided to demand more from our great democratic friends. a lot of mo

territory to him, and he's running against the unconventional candidate remember mitt romney is at the top of the ballot here, and mccain got 60%. you can see romney get 70% in this district, and that raises the threshold of the crossover votes that matheson needs to survive. he's in the game. it's a tossup, but tough to overcome the top of the ticket impact. >> stay out west. nevada, third congressional district. >> nevada, joe heck, congressman, the type of district that the democrats should be challenges to win the majority. it's a suburban las vegas clark county district, places where democrats should be doing well. they are having a tough time. a former leader in the state house, but what's interesting, he has an influential position in the state legislature, the ads talk about the records as a firefighter, not mentioning he's a politician because that label is not one you want to have. right now, heck has the advantage, but if democrats are having a better night than we expect, they would need to do belter in this type of district. >> california is a solid blue state for the presiden

combat spotter. it's about conflict both governor romney and president obama agreed on more than they disagreed on the education reform area. -- the work of arne duncan. it's hard to take -- when he picks the local superintendent and brings him back to washington are in. there wont point of contention in the presidential race and but the exception of kind of a throw away question that jim gave the candidates at the end of the debate which i would note half of the answer on both sides ended up being about johnson and the solyndra loan. there was virtually -- there was very little mention in the presidential race i really think that's unfortunate for the country. we want to come back to how we change the dynamic a little bit. however, there was a lot happening in state and local races and i think that does give us a snapshot of where voters stand on many of the issues on being discussed at the conference fop me, there are a few take aways that education reformers should consider as we try to move forward on the agenda that governor laid out this morning. let's start with substance.
